    How do you help someone who is starting to have an anger problem?

    Their fuse gets shorter and shorter all the time, and the things they blow up at become more and more trivial. How do you stop this in it's tracks before it's too late, and it starts to become them?

    Talk to them .... see if you can help them figure out just where the anger is really coming from. If intervention is early enough, they might just be able to get a handle on the real problem before their anger moments multiply so much that they can't see anything but red all the time. A real counseling intervention could probably defuse their anger completely but alot of people frown on formal counseling. So perhaps just having a friend or family member really listen to them might be all they need at this point.

    Suggest going to counseling or just talking to someone about what is causing the anger problem.  Someone experiencing this type of anger out of the blue may not even know what it is that is angering them, or they could just be angry with themselves and it causes them to take it out on others.  If they refuse to get help or to find what the issue is I ,myself, would walk away from them for good (if it was a significant other) because it can only but you at risk for Domestic Violence, whether it be mental or physical abuse.  You can not stop someones anger problem, the person themselves has to overcome their anger problem.  Others can offer support, but if the support is denied they chose to face it alone, and you should not feel guilty.  Just let them know you will still be there when they have it figured out!!
